Sharon Osbourne

RIPS Lady Gaga

You're a Hypocritical Attention Whore

breaking news


Sharon Osbourne has officially joined her daughter's feud with Lady Gaga ... firing off a letter to the pop star calling her a hypocritical JERK who encourages her fans to harass her daughter Kelly.

Osbourne is responding to a letter Gaga wrote to Kelly Osbourne and posted on her official website ... in which LG blasted Kelly as a "bully" who unfairly picks on celebrities on her TV show "Fashion Police."

Gaga said she's disgusted that Kelly and Joan Rivers constantly make "jokes about artists and celebrities as if we are zoo animals."

Sharon says Gaga's fans have been waging a campaign of online terror against the Osbournes thanks to Gaga's criticism of the show. Sharon claims some of the singer's fans have even made death threats to Kelly.

Now, in her letter to Gaga ... obtained by TMZ ... Sharon demands Gaga instruct her fans to stop the harassment ASAP. 

Osbourne writes, "A word from you would stop all this hideous, negative and vile threats from your 'little monsters.'"

Sharon also writes, "You say [Kelly's] work on E! with the Fashion Police is 'rooted in criticism, judgment, and rating people’s beauty against one another.' Welcome to the real world."

She continues, "By your actions to Kelly right now, you have shown me that you are nothing more than a publicity seeking hypocrite and an attention seeker."

"You know it would have been much more dignified of you to do this privately. I am calling you a bully because you have 32 million followers hanging on your every word and you are criticizing Kelly in your open letter.  Are you so desperate that you needed to make this public?"

There's more ... check out Sharon's entire letter after the jump ...


Ms. Gaga

I am responding to your open letter to my daughter Kelly and I m perplexed as to why you would go public with an open letter.  Regarding this current situation; Kelly didn’t contact you, I was the one that contacted your manager today and the email is attached below for your reference. 

I reached out to him as Kelly’s  manager and mother to ask him if you could address your “little monster” fans and stop them from writing libelous, slanderous and vile comments about my family including death threats to Kelly.   Your open letter is hypocritical and full of contradictions.   And as your mother Cynthia supports you, I support my daughter Kelly.  I must say your opinions on what is politically correct and acceptable totally differ from mine, but that is what makes the world so
interesting… we are all different.  How sweet that you have empathy for my daughter as you feel that she has taken a less passionate path in life.  You say her work on E! with the Fashion Police is “rooted in criticism, judgment, and rating people’s beauty against one another.” 

Welcome to the real world.

Example, when I saw you wear a dress made out of raw meat, I was sickened.  When I see you wearing fur and you use it as a fashion statement, that defenseless animals have been killed so you can get your picture in the press is abhorrent to me. Shouldn’t you be teaching your “little monster” fans to respect animals and life? I don’t feel I have to justify Kelly’s choices in life to you. 

By your actions to Kelly right now, you have shown me that you are nothing more than a publicly seeking hypocrite and an attention seeker. You know it would have been much more dignified of you to do this privately. I am calling you a bully because you have 32 million followers hanging on your every word and you are criticizing Kelly in your open letter.  Are you so desperate that you needed
to make this public?

You state “Everyday, through my music and public voice I choose to be positive and work towards a kinder and braver world with our community of followers.” Well this obviously is not translating well to your fans as a large portion of them, not only have been vile to Kelly but also other celebrities such as Madonna, Adele and Rihanna. “You say a kinder, braver world” I don’t know what world you live in but supporting disgraceful fan comments doesn’t fall under the words “kinder and braver” it comes under the heading of bullsh*t.

In closing, stop wearing fur, stop looking for publicity and stop using your fans to belittle not just Kelly but an endless stream of celebrities.  A word from you would stop all this hideous, negative and vile threats from your “little monsters.” Let me know if you want to continue this debate. I’m an open playing field for you my darling.

Sharon has her own TV show to take shots at Gaga and her little monsters. She's a very tough old broad. Just ask Ozzy. She'll be a "mama grizzly bear" looking after her cub if she needs to.

Bottom line, I think it would be smart for Lady Gaga to call or email Kelly Osbourne and at try to make peace. Who knows, maybe they can listen to each other's concerns and "hug it out" like those guys on the HBO show "Entourage".

Come and read what a hypocrite Gaga is.

I usually can't stand Gaga, but good for her. Kelly behaves hideously and has a horrible sense of entitlement for someone who is famous because of her dad rather than her own talent. Joan is funny and can defend herself.

I used to love Gaga, but now I can NOT stand her.. She's such a fake.. and she has set up her fans to go after people she dislikes.. then she plays the innocent card.. So self-righteous and smug.. Just reading her tweets with her makeup artist revolt me..

Remember when Gaga wore the meat dress on Ellen's show..... even though Ellen Degeneres is a VEGAN..

Gaga has no respect -- she's all about attention..any way she can get it..

In regards to Kelly and The Fashion Police -- it is just a TV show.. It's not serious.. And for someone like Gaga -- who puts so much emphasis into FASHION in her life, as if it is a necessity like water... she really should realize that not everyone is going to approve of her horrendous style choices.. Deal with it..

@JSMILEY -- When did Kelly threaten to kill, rape or tell people they should commit suicide? That's what Gaga's fans did to Kelly..


You do know that celebrities have been stalked and killed by nutjobs, right? The death threats and rape threats are WAY over the top..


Gaga should have addressed her fans and asked them to leave Kelly alone, then Gaga should have contacted Kelly privately and discussed her issues with her..


Although amid all the digs at Kelly in the letter -- Gaga did ask her fans to not threaten Kelly.. She HAD to know that a lot of her fans will disregard it .. and still go after Kelly..


Gaga is passive aggressive -- she knows how to stir up her fans and get them to go after people she dislikes.. and then she sits back and spouts her fake anti-bullying b.s..


Gaga is a fraud..

Sharon should allow her ADULT children to fight their own battles once in a while.Sharon's letter is only going to set those "monsters" into complete overdrive.

But speaking of attention seeking...didn't her child discuss this in a public forum? And now she's joined in by penning an open letter?

She should also NOT attempt to speak for other celebs in regards to how Gaga has treated them. If they have something to say...they'll say it (like Madonna has) Pretty pathetic move Sharon. Poor defenseless animals huh? Guess the same goes for those birds her husband decaputated by ripping their heads off with his teeth?

Kelly never said that Gaga was "fat"; she just answered a question as to why she believed that Gaga was wearing a burka....she thought Gaga was pregnant. At that time Gaga had put on a few pounds (Gaga herself proudly admitted it) and had made a drastic change to her hair. Many others at that time were speculating the exact same thing.

As for Kelly's comments about Gaga's style choices on "Fashion Police", why is Gaga "so offended"? She deliberately puts herself out there in crazy costumes for the attention. What some people think is beautiful and creative, others might think is a hot mess. Just because Kelly stated her opinion doesn't mean that she is being a bully. Many others have said much worse regarding her "fashion" choices.

Gaga could have handled this privately, and she could have stopped her "little monsters" when they started actually bullying Kelly (ex: death threats), but she didn't. Now, Sharon is stepping in fighting fire with fire.

I am Team Osbournes on this one.

Remember when Gaga wore the meat dress on The Ellen Show -- even though Ellen is vegan.. She sat there with that rotting animal flesh - in Ellen's chair.. talking to an animal rights activist and vegan..


Can Gaga really get any lower? Gaga only thinks of herself.. and her anti-bullying / mothering charade is nothing more than a money grab gimmick.. and people fall for it.. SHE'S FAKE as hell..

and while I am not the biggest Kelly Osbourne fan -- Gaga is irresponsible for going after Kelly again after her fans have already threatened Kelly with rape and death..


So who is the bully now, Gaga? You know your twisted fans who worship you will go nuts over anyone you dislike ..and yet you write another open letter filled with contempt towards Kelly... to rile your fans up once again..


What an irresponsible, malicious, self-righteous thing to do..

First off Sharon is awesome when it comes to ripping people....

LG you are exactly what Sharon said.. You talk about being treated like a zoo animal but your the one wearing a meat suit....

That would be like Amy Winehouse crying because people treated her like a addict while she is smoking a crack rock...

Get over it LG... you don't have to be a celeb.

Sharon has always said cruel things about people and attached the network when they didn't want her untalented son to host a show. Kelly is on a show that makes fun of celebrities and what they wear and she laughs every week at the mean things Joan Rivers says so why is Sharon all of a sudden acting like a victim? If you can give it out you should be able to take it.

am so sick of the Osborne Family ..another family of talent-less hacks who came before the talentl-less Kardashsians, and have milked their Reality Show for PR and Fame for years.. Cept for OZZIE (and that's debatable) what do any of them have that is any redeeming talent whatsoever? ... REALLY?

@Renae -- You say that Sharon should let Kelly fight her own battles -- which is absolutely ridiculous.. Kelly's gotten death threats and threats of rape.. You would seriously sit silently and say nothing if that was your child (or loved one)?


Gaga knows damn well how crazy some of her fans are.. They've already threatened violence on Kelly.. and instead of just telling her fans to knock it off and leave Kelly alone... Gaga launches into a self-righteous preach session stirring her psychotic fans up even more..


Gaga has been completely irresponsible...


I am NOT a fan of Sharon OR Kelly's.. but rest assured -- if my child/sister/mother was in the same situation.. I'd be speaking out too..
